I visited this delightful property in late September. As well as having everything we needed (and more!), we were blown away with how perfect the location was. You are positioned a few minutes walk from the town, including beaches, markets, bars, restaurants, bus station and a three minute walk from the famous Sunday Market, perfect for stocking up on fresh local produce.
The property is bright, clean and has everything you could possibly need. We ate our home-cooked meals out in the handy back terrace, and even had a BBQ one night in the front terrace. We also had coffee on our bedroom balcony in the mornings, that has a lovely view of the surrounding properties/gardens. The pool was perfectly clean and maintained and there was a lovely atmosphere there throughout the day.
We spent our time relaxing and the pool, exploring Puerto de Mazarrón (which has plenty of interesting nooks and crannies), enjoying the local beaches, renting bicycles and cycling along the coast, and visiting the local historic town of Cartagena. Transportation to Cartagena was very easy - we caught the bus which took just under an hour, the bus station being a few minutes walk from the property, and leaves every couple of hours. Whilst in Cartagena we visited the Naval Museum (€3 entry fee and very interesting/interactive), visited the ancient Roman Theatre museum and also spent some time shopping.
The local restaurants and bars in Puerto de Mazarron itself were fantastic and we felt spoilt for choice trying to decide where to go! Our favourites were Leonardo's Italian and La Pera Chica (Tapas), and for drinks - Faro 49 and La Cumbre (incredible views in both).
We'll definitely be coming back to this little gem!
